What the artists portrays is neither his inner self nor the objects themselves;instead what he depicts in his work is an intermediate layer between self and object, an element similar to the visual iconic medium of frosted glass. Liu Baomin is concerned with the existence of the images themselves; letting forms peel off from the objects, signifying the existence of the images themselves. What the images by Liu Baomin portray is not the appearance of images themselves; on the contrary,the artist tries to let the pictorial nature become a symbol for the personal experience. In other words through the use of images he portrays the experience of alienation of our epoch.
